Review:
A not-for-kids-only musical storybook delights the ear and the imagination. This deftly assembled collection of works by great composers, performed by world-class musicians and actors, includes Meryl Streep's graceful narration in an excerpt from Ravel's "Sleeping Beauty," Carol Channing's comic turn as every character in Gail Kubik's "Gerald McBoing Boing," and Bobby McFerrin as an entire orchestra in "Music Box." Other don't-miss moments: Danny Kaye's gentle rendition of "Tubby the Tuba" and David Bowie's vivid telling of Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf."
